by those who experienced combat, a medal of honor winner and others. john kerry, bob dole, and others. all of whom served their country with honor. he said -- if you have had that experience, not much is left and right that will intimate you. nothing did intimate warren rudman. he was fearless in the pursuit for the right. he served on the ethics committee where i first got to know him. i got a call from david souter. he gave me an assignment. i was a new senator. the assignment was not an easy one. they thought i could do it. it worked out just fine. i get to know him very well. on the ethics committee, he was known as mr. integrity. he was known as mr. integrity in everything he did in life. it is because of him and his high regard for this young man who he recommended be on the supreme court but i was able to make a friend. i have known a lot of people who have served on the supreme court. i have a friend in david souter. we have spent so many -- so much quality time. a lot of that time has been spent talking about warren rudman. we have laughed and found a few times about warren rudman

heroic things during that war. and it also has the support of former senate majority leader bob dole, certainly a patriot. senator dole, a disabled veteran from world war ii, who led the fight to pass the treaty, was here yesterday urging republicans to support it. now, mr. president, think about that. robert dole, who was grievously injured in world war ii, spent more than two years in a hospital, he came to this senate floor, and the first speech he gave was on disabilities, and we needed to do something about it. he was here -- he led the fight to pass the treaty, urging republicans to support it. a few republicans greeted him as he was in his wheelchair here. they greeted this 89-year-old war hero, i repeat, patriot, who just last week was in walter reed hospital. then one by one, all but a handful of them voted against the treaty, ensuring its failure. but their professed reasons for opposing it had no basis in fact -- none. most republicans acknowledge that. some use an excuse, well, it is a lame duck. we shouldn't be doing it in a lame duck. i mean, wow ... and there's no just

and in the six years that we served together, i as majority leader, bob dole as minority leader, never once did a harsh word pass between us, although we differed on many issues, we debated vigorously on the floor of the senate, but it was not personal and we had dinner a couple times a week to talk about the issues and the problems that we had, and life in general. i think that's missing now, unfortunately. >> so i mean, who do you -- i don't know if blame is the right word, but how do you account for this idea that compromise is a dirty word in some quarters? is it tea party, is it extremes in either party? who is it? >> i think it's a combination of many factors, and i'm not an expert on this. i don't pretend to have all of the answers. but first, you now have redistricting which means that the vast majority of house members are elected in safe seats so the crucial election is not the general election, it's the primary election, and as we know in primaries, there's low participation which gives a hugely disproportionate power to the rigid extremes on both sides. that makes it very difficult.

protecting the rights of disabled people failed to pass a senate vote. bob dole supported it. john mccain, a lot of the republicans frankly killed it based on made up facts. you'll hear from ted kennedy jr. tonight. that's a picture of his dad taken about six years after he lost his leg. also, gary tuckman has a report as bizarre as it is troubling. hundreds of children, they were picking pecans instead of being in school. the leader is warren jeffs, they ran away when gary showed up with the camera. what's worse, the kids aren't being paid, but someone was and we'll also talk to the photographer who took the now infamous photographs of the man killed in new york and what he saw through his lens and what other people did and did not do on that subway flat form. all at the top of the hour. >>> now, our fifth story "outfront." new jersey's republican governor, chris christie, was at the white house on capitol hill today asking for more funding for his storm ravaged state. as republicans in washington continue to slam the president for additional spending is well, perhaps problematic. ch

at president clinton bess towing the medal of freedom on world war ii veteran bob dole. that's just weeks after re-election back in 1996. why do i show you all of these? because it all brings me to a very special party of two having lunch next hour at the white house. president obama, as promised, in his victory speech 23 days ago, is hosting mitt romney, who has made no secret that he really thought that it would be the other way around. and our dan lothian is counting down the minutes, standing by at the white house, even though, dan, you are not invited to the luncheon, nor am i or anyone else at the camera, a mic or even a pen. why is it so private? >> reporter: that's right. oftentimes, the president will have meetings here at the white house, lunches or official meetings, where the president is not invited in. our cameras are not allowed in. sometimes our cameras are allowed in but no editorial presence. this one of those where no cameras allowed in, we're hopeful the white house will take a pick pur and release it to us, but at this point no plans for us to sort of get a peek inside that
